O Mirrorless, Where Art Thou?
6 months ago

I had the opportunity to attend the Air Force Academy graduation ceremonies a couple of weeks ago. There were several thousand people in the stands along with almost as many image-making devices. Over the course of more than three hours, I kept a keep eye out for mirrorless and, especially micro 4/3, cameras. What I found was, in order of popularity:

  1. mobile phones - maybe 90% + of all cameras there
  2. DSLR - Nikon and Canon only. No Pentax or any other brand
  3. Superzooms - all-in-one super ~50x super zooms
  4. Digital P&S - typical $100 to $200 digicams. Really very few of these, but they were there
  5. Mirrorless - ZERO!!! - m4/3, NEX, etc... - ZERO!

I could not believe that I saw no other recognizable mirrorless cameras. My E-P5 was so lonley. I'm sure they were there somewhere. Or were they?

In any event, a fine Colorado May day.
